The park is contiguous with  Kensington Gardens ; although often still assumed to be part of Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens has been technically separate since 1728, when  Queen Caroline  made a division between the two. Hyde Park is 142 hectares (350 acres) and Kensington Gardens is 111 hectares (275 acres giving an overall area of 253 hectares (625 acres), making the combined area larger than the  Principality of Monaco  (196 hectares or 484 acres), but smaller than  New York City 's  Central Park  (341 hectares or 843 acres). To the southeast (but outside of the park) is  Hyde Park Corner . Although, during daylight, the two parks merge seamlessly into each other, Kensington Gardens closes at dusk but Hyde Park remains open throughout the year from 5 am until midnight. </li></ul><ul><li>The park was the site of  The Great Exhibition  of 1851, for which  the Crystal Palace  was designed by  Joseph Paxton . </li></ul><ul><li>The park has become a traditional location for mass demonstrations.  The Chartists , the  Reform League ,  the Suffragettes  and  the Stop The War Coalition  have all held protests in the park.

  12. 12. the tube <ul><li>The London Underground is a  rapid transit  system serving a large part of  Greater London  and neighbouring areas of  Essex ,  Hertfordshire  and  Buckinghamshire  in the UK. The first section opened in 1863, and was the first underground railway system in the world, and, starting in 1890, it was also the first to operate electric trains. Despite the name, about 55% of the network is above ground. It is usually referred to officially as  the Underground  and colloquially as  the Tube , although the latter term originally applied only to the deep-level bored lines, to distinguish them from the sub-surface &quot;cut and cover&quot; lines that were built first. More recently this distinction has been lost sight of and the whole system is now referred to as &quot;the Tube&quot;, even in recent years by its operator in official publicity. </li></ul>
  13. 13. culture
  14. 14. <ul><li>English people traditionally speak the  English language , a member of the  West Germanic   language family . The modern English language evolved from  Old English , with lexical influence from Norman-French, Latin, and Old Norse.  Cornish , a  Celtic language  originating in  Cornwall , is currently spoken by about 3,500 people. Historically, another Brythonic Celtic language,  Cumbric , was spoken in Cumbria  in  North West England , but it died out in the 11th century although traces of it can still be found in the Cumbrian dialect. Because of the 19th century geopolitical dominance of the  British Empire  and the post-World War II hegemony of the  United States , English has become the international language of business, science, communications, aviation, and diplomacy </li></ul>lenguage

  16. 16. art <ul><li>English art  was dominated by imported artists throughout much of the  Renaissance , but in the  eighteenth century  a native tradition became much admired. It is often considered to be typified by  landscape painting , such as the work of  J.M.W. Turner  and  John Constable . Portraitists like  Thomas Gainsborough ,  Joshua Reynolds  and  William Hogarth  are also significant. Hogarth also developed a distinctive style of satirical painting. </li></ul>
